for the world, the politics spoke. business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. ah, branded a trial of the century. delaine maxwell now faces up to 65 years in prison after being found guilty on 5 of 6 charges in a sex trafficking trial linked to late convicted pedophile. jeffrey ab skip america's budget priorities. put the pentagon before the pandemic as president biden signs off on a massive $700000000000.00 defense plant. while washington's global vaccination campaign keeps running out of money, german politicians wants to ban popular messaging app telegram over hosting hate speech and coven conspiracy theories. however, moscow says that's double standard after the german media criticized russia for trying to do the same. just a few years ago. in the mary leaders slams australia's policy of automatically
9:01 pm
deporting new zealanders, convicted of crimes, even if they have spent their entire lives in australia. it is not good enough, they do deal and is becoming a penal colony for australia and, and just deporting your problem. why does not solve the problem of gangs and bicycle strategy in new zealand? broadcasting live direct from our studios in moscow. this is our international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to help you with the fate of galena, maxwell, the long time friend of late convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein is finally known. the jurors in her closely watched trial have found her guilty of all charges, but one. she was accused of grubbing teenage girls for epstein ortiz bends. one has more lay maxwell found guilty on 5 of the 6 counts against her. the jury took 5 days to come to this conclusion, the judge at actually order that they spent an extra hour each day deliberating
9:02 pm
because he said they needed to get to this before the end of the year. well, they have found guilty of several things. number one of sex trafficking of a minor transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. and 3 related counts of conspiracy. count 2 was the one count that she was not guilty on. that was the count of enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts. now, as you probably know, not all counts are the same counts. one through 4 were the lowest number of maximum prison years in prison. you can get counts 5 and 6. those are the heavy counts. let me share with you though. so count 5 is the count of sex trafficking. and conspiracy that carries a maximum of 5 years in prison with it. but the big count, the biggest of them all, that is count 6, count 6, is sex trafficking of an individual under the age of 18. and that count carries a maximum of 40 years in prison. this trial has gone on for over
9:03 pm
a month with the prosecutors calling more than 24 witnesses to the stand, bringing them forward, essentially to tell sorted tells. busy of life behind the kind of behind the curtain with jeffrey epstein and glean maxwell maxwell more than just a friend and former girlfriend of epstein. she does believe to be the fixer, the one who would recruit a lot of these young girls and bring them to the properties in several different locations, including florida, new york and new mexico. now going, maxwell's attorneys, had argued that this entire trial wasn't about her. it was actually about galle maxwell, dean on trial for the crimes of jeffrey f seen. but clearly a jury felt very differently about it. but also interesting about this case is that there were only 4 women who were that kind of at the center of glean maxwell's prosecution for women who would accused her of recruiting them when they were under age. on behalf of jeffrey epstein and sharing him with powerful friends. we also heard a lot from pilots who at one time worked for jeffrey epstein. and we also got a glimpse during this trial of that. so called little black book,
9:04 pm
the little black book being that list of famous people, powerful people and influential people with whom jeffrey epstein had a relationship and had shared a lot of these young girls now going back to was not completely done at this point . she still faces by the way to charges of perjury. and there's another trial going forward or another case going forward that takes her out of this still surrounds jeffrey up scene. and that's the case of prince andrew. of course, virginia go free. the woman who was accused prince andrew of having abuse her, she says that he did when she was under age. and again, that was all tied back to jeffrey epstein and going maxwell. so again, at a later time, there will be a sentencing hearing going. maxwell, by the way, did not respond in the court room, remain relatively stoic and walked out, should we sent him some later time, but again, facing up to 65 years in prison. elaine maxwell found guilty on 5 of 6 charges against her, and again could be spending the rest of her life behind bars. while the global covered pandemic continues, america has a different priority with joe biden,
9:05 pm
now signing a massive $700000000000.00 military budget for the upcoming year, even by america's own estimates. that's $100.00 times more than the cost of vaccinating the entire planet and started. but august, if comments, it's bigger than it's bader than ever before. america's new military budget, $777700000000.00, so vast it board doesn't monstrous. and it's still not enough, say the people who passed it are nations facing many threats right now. just read the paper every day. china russia ran in yet that budget was actually pro provided by the white house. was a cut, pretty dramatic cut. if you look at it, as in john adjusted for inflation, it is remarkable. these lawmakers they'll, they'll sit there and argue for weeks, months about maternity leave. will building roads or bridges will or walls. but the
9:06 pm
better part of a trillion dollars on a more machine back, $88.00 for 11 against past and the next day that will come to work and to congress and. and they'll wonder where the heck all their money went. i also find it amusing that senator mansion indicates his worry about the deficit after voting justice week for a military budget of $778000000000.04 times greater than build back better over 10 years and $25000000000.00 more than the president requested $778000000000.00. i mean $700000000.00 is a decimal here. a decimal. where rounding up and down by, by hundreds of millions, 16 times greater than russia's military budget, greater than the next 11 highest military budgets put together. a sudden that the human mind can barely comprehend. somewhat of the extra billions going towards the
9:07 pm
secretary shall take appropriate action to increase the use of low emission initial fee and net 0 initial energy technologies in the operations programs, projects and activities of the department provided these is cost effective on with ally cycle of the innocent, there's also a new ranko position in the u. s. military, according to the n d, a draft bill. and that is gender advisor. so troops can get help if they feel like changing genders. we can only guess how many millions that's going to cost. and of course, none of this would be possible without china and russia because of whom the pentagon argued it needed more money. ginger sandy, we firmly opposed the u. s. slipping negative content concerning china or making an issue out of china for political manipulation is not implement negative content and articles in the act that target china and damaged chinese interests or hurts overall bilateral ties and corporation and important areas. while the l g b t,
9:08 pm
q plus community may let out a sigh of relief, people that have been incarcerated. guantanamo bay innocence included without trial or justice for decades, will just have to wait a little longer. now one thing they didn't find any money for is, is a few dozen plane tickets to send guantanamo inmate's home, or to court. unfortunately, he section 1032 of the act continues to borrow the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay detainees to the custody or effective control of certain foreign countries. and section 1033 of the act bars, the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay. detainees into the united states, unless certain conditions are met. it would cost an estimated $7000000000.00 to vaccinate billions. those who still can't get the vaccine. one percent of america's military budget, just one percent, to potentially hold the development of new strains and variance of coven. but no
9:09 pm
gender advise us in the electric cars for the pentagon. that's the priority. the more the pentagon spends on insanity, the more military contractors make money, isn't we're not at war with anybody. and why we need a military budget the, his bigger than the next over 10 nations combined. i mean that's, that's nonsense. now if you just ended that military, industrial compet just ended this massive military state and let people spend their own money as they see fit. you'd see people spending their money to help people far more effectively than u. s. a. i d ever does to provide health care for people overseas and not using that money to hurt people the way the military does. ah, the popular messaging app telegram might soon be restricted in germany over claims . it's not doing enough to combat extremist content and coded conspiracy theories. wasn't all that long ago. however, the german media were criticizing russia for trying to do the similar restrictions
9:10 pm
as moscow has been quick to point out. when in 2018 russian court imposed restrictions on the telegram app and prevent attended messages, almost every general media outlets reported about that so called violation of the freedom of speech in russia. but now that political campaign is heating up in germany, guess what? they are targeted with restrictions. telegram, well, it is all rather simple and se telegram in a way it revolutionized messaging and it brought a lot of good to the word to the world and it has changed to things. and it has changed the ways we will text each other, i should say. but of course, a telegram being one of the least regulated and apps for messaging. there's also another side for this medal it has harboured and has become a haven for all sorts of fringe groups. and while some of those groups might be rather innocent, others are not others or rather harmful. there are all sorts of extremists who are well organizing their there are all sorts of anti vax or movements which are,
9:11 pm
well they kind of get all the information or the misinformation, i should say from this messenger. they feed each other with this misinformation and they kind of exist in this little bubble of delusion or that telegram basically allows them, allows them to exist there and to coordinate their black protests actions, demonstrations and so on and so forth. and basically, dragons involve more people into the circle of covered their misinformation. and this is exactly the problem that germany has with telegram that it allows this sort of people to just exist and well to fester there. and so right now, be, are accusing telegram of hate speech or they are looking for will legal ways to somehow will influence the company and to have the company or if they can't influence it, than to take it down altogether. and of course, the german government here, we can all understand it because while harmful societies, they should not be allowed to just really exist on any platform. but basically this is where the hypocrisy bit comes in. because when russia back in 2018,
9:12 pm
tried to do the exactly same thing, the exact same thing to block telegram because there were terrorists and extremists plotting and you know, coordinating their actions there. nobody wanted to listen to russian. they weren't having any of that. germany was outraged, all of europe was outraged. this was their rhetoric. the blocking of telegram is yet another sound development concerning freedom of speech pluralism and the right to privacy in russia. this is the sort of will rhetoric we heard back in 2018. well, compared to what germany is saying right now, we must quickly create a legal option for switching telegram. so has to be much reaction them from the german public over this you can see one of the headlines, for example, that there are, there are very, very heated debates over well targeting telegram also. it's also so that was yazzy of hatred for example. right now, those politicians, those german politicians who are calling for a blockage of telegram for to band the app. they are getting
9:13 pm
a bit of their own medicine. so now the public and their world policy of political rivals, they kind of fight back and they accuse them of violating free speech. it does not fit in with a free constitutional state to simply switch off digital platforms. this proposal fits into totalitarian regimes but not into our constitutional order. switching off an entire app is a form of state media censorship that we do not want in germany. so there you have it, and it's not the 1st case recently of germany being accused of, well, you know, not being that dedicated to the freedom of speech. principal r t, 's sister channel in german. it has been banned in germany, even though it had every legal right to exist than to well to appear on the airwaves. germany justified the decision by saying that the channel should have, should have received a german broadcasting license. even though there are no legal grounds to do that, we're being told by experts it received a broadcasting license in serbia, which is good enough for the entirety of the you. but germany wasn't having that.
9:14 pm
and so there have been some accusations of well, but germany is not as dedicated to the freedom of speech principal as it may be, wants to appear on the line. we spoke with mateo, donnie, a commentator at tech travel geek. he thinks blocking. one platform won't stop the spread of extremist content. obvious a telegram, the users who and telegram at the moment shouldn't have too much of an issue. moving to whatsapp. apples i message platform, google's messaging chat platform. there are loads of different messaging apps and services. and let's not forget, there are also dedicated social media platforms which make it even easier to distribute this type of information or to congregate and discuss these topics. it's also very, very contradictory. we're sometime about 10 years ago in the, in the arab spring, we were celebrating these platforms for enabling uprisings across the mcgray. but
9:15 pm
in the middle east, it's one of those things that i think is very contradictory. it's fine when it suits it, but then you fight against it when it doesn't. ah, an indigenous leader in new zealand says, australia is using his country as a dumping ground. the national murray authority chairman wants to cambra to scrap it's policy of deporting new zealanders when they have convicted crimes. it is not good enough that new zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia and just deporting your problem. why does not solve the problem of gangs in both australia and new zealand? it is not good enough just to say we're going to stick a whole lot of people in applying on a government child applying and seen them back to new zealand. that is not the spirit of friendship that you would expect between 2 neighbors. under australian law, if a foreign nationals are sentenced to more than one year in prison,
9:16 pm
they automatically lose the right to stay in the country. that applies even if they have lived in australia their entire lives. the last couple of years have seen hundreds of people send back to new zealand. australia's immigration minister has defended the policy saying the government will continue to expel for nationals who commit serious offences, including new zealanders who according to a special agreement, are supposed to be able to live and visit and work in australia. without restriction, matthew to khaki says, australia needs to work with new zealand to find a better solution. now i also did battle stray and citizens. you know, it's easy just to pull the problem away. and australians want exactly what we want . we want safe communities. we do not want to say drugs being sold to our children . we are sick and tired of st. gonzalez, so asked traits one possible solution is a joint task force to address a couple of different things. and even though our police forces by do share information, data and intelligence at the moment,
9:17 pm
that would be good to see if we could just increase and including and beastie and joint resources. that means also having a look at information and intelligence to find out we these drug supply networks, a stablished themselves across south east asia, even into the pacific and being, let's do their job to give us as austria and you sealant and that ends expert should parents have more say in what their children are taught at school. well, according to nicole hannah jones, they shouldn't. she is the founder of the controversial $161900.00 project, which aims to reframe us history in terms of race. and her views are divisive. i don't really understand this idea that parents should decide what's being taught . i'm not a professional educator. i don't have a degree in social studies or science. we send our children to school because we want them to be taught by people who have an expertise in the subject area. and that is not my job or the parents. i have every right to ensure my child isn't
9:18 pm
being towards lies. despite what nicole 100 joe says, how can this be promoted to a she or anyone else to say parents don't get a say in our children's education position is faulty and should be listen to on. must have a platform and moved, sorry, but parents must be involved. come on, you pesky parents, just let her indoctrinate your kids in peace. hannah jones launched the 6900 project with the new york times 2 years ago. if the goal is to highlight the legacy of slavery and the contributions of black americans throughout us, history, indeed content from the project has been included in school curricula. in the last, at least in 5 us states, we discussed this with legal analyst, jennifer braden de master, and also with political activist anthony rogers, right. fortunately in america right now, the political faction is kind of taking over everything else including education. i think that's some of the concern here because really what you're trying to do is
9:19 pm
refrain retrain children's mind. and that's, that could lead and, and we're seeing this now the rise and anxiety and political issues in children getting younger and younger every year. and i think parents have a right to be concerned about that. the major issue here is that a professor hannah jones is actually talking about the truth and, and that's what's lacking so much in this nation right now. and it's really, really sad that even the most far right wing people in germany can accept the fact that there were nazis that carried out atrocities the fact that this nation was forge in a cauldron of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and lance matching is not alive at the end of the day. this is a fear of the right from hearing and having to embrace the truth. and it's funny that the people on the side, the i are also talking about are also talking about not the germany, because not the journey with a, with also the government and the order that the leadership there that started to
9:20 pm
import this propaganda into the population to say if you agree or you don't, that is what my colleague is saying here. that's what some of these new educational politicians are trying to are trying to impose on children on young children. and all that's going to do is continue dividing the population because one thing has happened from this they, they claim to be the moral high ground. it claims to be the beacon of truth, but all it's doing is dividing. people confuse the children and wanting children to turn against each other. i don't even know what just happened. that was a very interesting soliloquy. again, we're not trying to tear people apart from each other. truth is truth. if truth is going to hurt people that's on, on the people, and what you just heard in this very myopic and silly a soliloquy is that it's some sort of political motivation. truth just is, is truth. you cannot deny what has happened in this country. what is happening in this country, and you cannot deny that this country was founded in the image and the lens of
9:21 pm
benefiting white people at the expense of other people. and that's just a fact. you can absolutely talk and teach about history and about what's happened in this country. them the heretic, things of laboring without having to completely de do is completely unravel the fabric and the foundations of this country's history. but, but you know, when it comes to truth migrant, we are so far from when that used to mean it's not a relative term. friends has registered europe's highest ever daily spike in colored cases with 200000 in the past 24 hours. the health minister is describing it as a title wave with more. here's our cheese pulse here. the latest announcement is certain concerning, not only to france, but here across europe. as you correctly mentioned, the french health minister announcing that france has crossed the threshold of more than 200000 people, testing positive for covert in the last 24 hours. if you break that down, it's 2 french people testing positive every 2nd for 24 hours. including the daytime
9:22 pm
and nighttime, the actual figure was 208000. now, the french minister made that announcement while he was motivating to turn the mandatory health pass into a vaccination pass. in other words, people will have to show proof of vaccination if they're to enter any kind of public spaces, bars, restaurants, and cultural venues. at the same time, the health minister spoke about galloping circulation and said, these kind of figures make you dizzy. if you're able to do human music early on the conversion, but it's not just to waive anybody given the numbers we are recording, it's a tidal wave denied figures show the continuous increase. it makes you dizzy. now, 5000000 people in france have not as of yet received the vaccination. the health minister ascribing to primarily 2 reasons. he says the one group is people who are far away from information and potentially far away from any kind of vaccination
9:23 pm
sites. and the number of people that fall into this category is hard to determine. but then there's a, another group of people who are against, against the vaccine. what ever comes and here, turning a health pass into a vaccination pass is not going to help them. these are people who believe that covered doesn't exist, that the vaccine can, can kill a person. and there's no way to try and convince these. anti faxes fonts now has the highest number of covert positive people per day in europe. it's hospitals are already struggling to deal with people who have been admitted with the previous delta strain and increasing concerns that although the army con, so far seems more debt. but certainly we are going to witness francais health services been pushed to the limit. or that is it for me, the power i will be back in the top of our with a look at your headline said with our change nation. ah
9:24 pm
ah, one of the was debra mesce shootings in america was in las vegas in 2017. the tragedy exploded a little of the real las vegas, where many se elected officials are controlled by casino knows the dank as shooting revealed wet deal vs p. d really is. and now it's part of the stand machine. most of the american public barely remembers that it happens that just shows you the power of money in las vegas. the powerful showed that true colors when the pandemic heard the most contagious contagion that we've seen in decades. and then you have a mayor who doesn't care. so here's carolyn goodman, offering the lives of the vegas resinous. to be the control group. to the shiny facades conceal a deep indifference to the people vice could have been saved if they were to take
9:25 pm
an action. absolutely, keep the registering and keep the slot machines. dinging vegas is a money machine is a huge cash register that is ran by people who don't care about people's lives. being lawson with i was diagnosed with cancer in 2005. so when the doctors told me the cancer was incurable, i knew i had to make a change. so i decided to travel to one of the most toxic places in america. oh florida. one of florida is biggest industries and best kept secrets is fostering mine, and the biggest layer is $85000000000.00 industry is mosaic, and i vow reports of millions of gallons of contaminated water now flowing into the florida aquifer. made a chronic. oh,
9:26 pm
you don't want to work towards me, but that's what it is. and 2013 my uncle, our family dog, my brother, who is 21 years old, myself in my body. and we're all guy rob with black hole. and the good way, yeah, yeah. maybe they'll actually learn that r l is more important than it states. it has to be rash, to be able to afford enzyme and find the luxury that for sure. despite having the most expensive health care system in the world, we have poor life expectancy. we have higher infant mortality. we have
9:27 pm
more deaths from treatable causes. so americans are suffering every day from it. it's as if these people don't count. i saw how they can choose their customers and dump a sick calling so also i can satisfy their wall street investors. no parents should have to see what i saw. so if you're denying payment for someone's care, your make life and death decision and determine to get to with 10 who dies to me this best getting away with murder. oh. when i went to the wrong one, i just don't know any world is yet to shape out disdain to come to the african and engagement. it was the trail. when so
9:28 pm
many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah ah, i'm after continue watching, going underground team and i will be back for brand new season on wednesday, the 12th of january. but until then we'll be showing you some of your favorite shows from this season that got 26 continues in glasgow and join. now, by the president of the country,

9:30 pm
you know, to propose another, a tentative mechanism instrument in noted, you're not all the developing countries phase, the product with just which are new market instruments for those $100000000.00 and a $1000000000.00 that they provide. they compromise in, in parties agreement, but we haven't seen anything yet. yeah. they, they promised it. and so when you talk to your proposals, all we heard from rich countries at good on the so called mainstream media nature media. they talked about carbon markets. the need to increase g d p and net 0. what your reaction to these kinds of policies while they are talking about cedar net in 2050, you know, and we are talking about the year that we have do the rich,
